    I found little support on the averatec website so so finding drivers may be a problem. As far asa the reasdt you wil have to purchase an operating system if Averatec wil not cell you a replacment CD. I would have reservation of ever dealing with that comapny again after this.

    What operating system do you have?
    You can usually order restore CDs from the computer manufacturer, but we can get around that as long as you had a legal copy of windows to start with. (There should be a Windows code on the rear of the machine). If so, you can reinstall Windows from a Windows disk using that code.

    What is your question, obviously you have to buy a copy of Windows and reload it or am I missing something...

And you are not likely to get them.
Out of curiosity I decided to try and find where to order them.
Cant be that hard, right?
Wow , was I wrong.
First step went here
But they dont have your model listed.
If you go to trigems site they have a FAQ
Which directs you to a site that has a domain squatter on it.
Your PC had the restore media already on it.
On the hard drive. Which died. And what did they save? A buck or two by not shipping out a CD?
However,
Beginning with Windows 95 OSR2, all versions of Windows are licensed tothe computer, not the user. So, if the computer has a Certificate ofAuthenticity affixed to it you could legally install that same version of Windows from any CD. As long as it is the same version. If you had XP home , you cant install XP pro. Also the version you have is an OEM version , rather than a retail one.
If you can find a correct version to install , you can find the drivers
here.
Good luck.

Mi notebook acer aspire 3000LCi the only do is a an upper and i dont have a recovery disk


When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.


To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer

(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.


Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.


Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.


If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.


Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.

Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.


Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.

Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.


Restart your computer to complete the restore.


3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.


Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.

When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.


This will bring up the system restore menu.

Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings


hope this helps

Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer.



Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.



Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner.



Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."



Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab.



Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."



Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.



Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart.



Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your internet settings.

How to restore my dell windows xp back to its factory settings



Backup all important files and folders. Restoring your system includes formatting the hard disk.

This will erase all files and folders. Make a copy of anything you don't want to lose by backing it up on an external drive or CD/DVDs.

Locate your recovery media. Check your computer manual or the Dell support page for your system on what kind of restore function your computer has.

Some models will come with a recovery disk. Some will use a program called Norton Ghost. Others will use files hidden in a separate hard disk partition (Dell System Restore).

Use Dell System Restore. If you find your computer has Dell System Restore, restart your computer and during the boot process hold the Control Key and the F11 key.

This will boot to the restore partition of your hard drive. Follow the instructions to reset your Dell to factory settings.

Use your Dell System Recovery CD. Insert the CD and reboot your computer. When asked, choose to boot the system using the CD.

After booting the system, you will likely be asked if you want to try to repair the current installation or restore to factory defaults.

It is recommended to choose "restore to factory defaults." Follow the instructions to format your hard drive, reinstall Windows and reset your computer to factory settings.

After the operating system has been reinstalled, you may have to individually install the drivers that make your system components run.

Your Dell likely came with a CD called "Drivers and Utilities." Insert this CD and follow the on-screen instructions to install system drivers.

Once you have access to the internet, run Windows Update to configure Windows XP to the latest security and stability settings.

hope this helps

Restore factory settings


If the computer comes with a hidden partition that can restore factory settings, then typically, you will hit ALT + F10 or F11 or F12 (you will have to try them one at a time) tap whichever one you are trying as soon as you push the power button and keep tapping until it goes to a restore screen. If you give the make & model of the computer, I can give better instructions. Some computers don't have a restore partition on the hard drive, so this is not an option.

How do i reset to factory settings on the toshiba satellite L25-S119


Hi bigbro1610...

To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operatins system and the drivers.
You will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
1.
Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new. So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

Computer not working. tried restore says error stopped it from working. facebook apps won't work. says to download flash version. tried said downloaded but still won't work. try to get on some web pages...


Sounds like your hard drive has unrecoverable errors. If you have another computer available, download SeaTools for DOS and copy it to a CD. Boot the problem computer from the CD and it'll run a check to see if you harddrive's smartcheck flag has been tripped. If it has, replace hard drive and restore the factory settings using restore disk(s). If you don't have the restore disk(s), you can order them from Toshiba for your model for about $20.
If hard drive checks out w/out errors, you may be suffering from a virus that has corrupted files. The easiest and fastest approach is to restore to factory settings using the restore disk(s). If you haven't backed up your important data, download AVG with another computer, put it on a CD, install it on the problem computer, if possible, then start the problem computer in Safe Mode, then run the AVG program. It will default to batch mode when run in Safe Mode. If you have viruses, it'll get hundreds off your computer during the batch run. You may have to turn off Windows' System Restore first, to ensure the viruses don't get reloaded.
Good luck!

Lost hard drive!


If you have the "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were shipped with the computer, you can use them to reinstall Windows to the "factory" settings.

If you no longer have those CD-ROMs, contact Fujitsu, and order a replacement set. $20 ? $20 for courier-shipping?

Can i restore my ibm x30 back to factory settings


Yes.

One way: take the "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were originally shipped with the computer, and boot from the first CD.

If you have lost those CDs, there may be a "recovery partition" on the disk-drive -- when you turn the computer on, look for a "Press F11 to enter Product Recovery" prompt. Press F11.

Contact IBM. For about $60, they will ship a replacement set of those "System Restore" CD-ROMs to you.
